RESIDENT NOTIFICATION – ANNUAL SLIDE REMOVAL OPERATION
Caltrans wishes to inform residents along Hwy. 1 between Elephant Trunk and Gorda, that a slide removal operation is expected to begin in the vicinity of your neighborhood on Monday night, June 22 at 10 pm.
This slide removal operation will take place Sunday night through Friday morning for a three week period (June 22 through July 10) during the same overnight hours as the Elephant Trunk Retaining Wall project closures, from 10 pm to 7 am.
Caltrans will make every effort not to disturb the residents in the area, however, residents are encouraged to prepare accordingly for this work.
Questions about this project can be directed to Caltrans Public Information Officer Susana Z. Cruz at (805) 549-3138.
This annual slide removal operation was postponed and scheduled at the same time of the Elephant Trunk Retaining Wall project to minimize the impact to the local residents. Your patience and cooperation is greatly appreciated. This roadwork is necessary to avoid any highway closures in the winter.
All local businesses in the Big Sur Area remain open for business during the project.
